— THEORIES ABOUT THE UNIVERSE by Blythe Baird (via shroomfairy)
In January, Sam Pepper uploaded a video called “How To Get A Girlfriend Easy” in which he sneaks up behind or beside unsuspecting women on the street and handcuffs them to himself. He then tells them they’re “his girlfriend now.”
When one victim reacts furiously, saying “No! I don’t know you! Take it off!” and demands that he remove the handcuffs, he refuses and replies with “We’re dating now.” She tries again, “Look, I don’t know where you’re from, but we don’t do this in America. Take this off,” while fighting with the cuffs. He refuses again, insisting they’re “going on a date.” She then tells him that she’s married, to which he says “No, you’re married to me now,” and refuses yet again to remove the handcuffs.
At the end of the video, another woman is pleading with him to undo the handcuffs, and he refuses to until she kisses him on the lips. Pepper appears to think the entire scenario is hilarious at best and endearingly misguided at worst, while the women being “pranked” are visibly livid, terrified, and profoundly uncomfortable.
NONE OF THESE THINGS ARE PRANKS.
We need to stop calling assault by white men on men of color and women of all races “pranks,” because it makes them seem lighthearted and fun, not like the violent criminal acts they are.
Coloring embryos by injecting dye into eggs before they hatch has been practiced for a number of years. It is done to identify the young of certain hatches or groups. And it makes it easier to observe movements of wild birds (especially water fowl) after they leave the nests.
The process of coloring chicks by injecting dye into the eggs also provides an opportunity to study early feather growth. Juvenile plumage will replace the colored down in about two weeks. As this happens, the dyed background amid new growing feathers provides a constantly changing pattern.
While it is possible to inject eggs from about the 10th to 19th days of incubation, the period from the 11th to 14th days appears to be ideal. Only one treatment is necessary if the injection is done at this time. When injections are made after the 14th day the color usually remains localized because the embryo occupies most of the egg; so it may be necessary to inject the egg in more than one place.
Harmless vegetable dyes, such as food coloring dyes sold in grocery stores, work very satisfactorily.
This does not harm the chicks in any way, and eventually as they mature their adult feathers push through and they develop normally with their standard coloured feathers.
The coloring is really interesting but just watch this video because it’s a bunch of chicks chasing a shiny piece of wrapper and it’s so freaking adorable.
they look like nerds candy
THIS IS LITERALLY THE MOST HEARTBREAKING THING I HAVE EVER SEEN OH MY GOD I HAVE ACTUAL TEARS IN MY EYES.
STOLE A KISS PRANK
I’m telling you right here, right now, if you kiss me without my consent I will destroy you. I will hit you so hard in your nether regions that your future children (should you unfortunately reproduce) will feel it.
For real though people don’t do this. This is sick and totally disgusting. Sexual assault isn’t a freakin’ joke or a prank.
If someone did this to me, their life would be forfeit.
Ugh fuck this bullshit
Yes stop letting straight white boys do whatever the hell they want
SEXUAL ASSAULT IS NOT A FUCKING PRANK
So I hadn’t yet come out to my mum and today I got home to see that someone had changed the cover on my bed to this
And then I saw that they left a note on the bed, so I went over to take a look at it and
My mum is the best
Whenever I see this I think well what if you weren’t gay and you came home one day to this
